An Oxford University employee has been charged with murder in Chicago after a 26-year-old hair stylist was found with more than 40 stab wounds.

Somerville College’s Andrew Warren, 56, is accused of killing Trenton Cornell-Duranleau. Professor Wyndham Lathem, 42, whose apartment the body was found in, is also accused.

Chicago Police announced on Saturday that they had both been charged with first degree murder after they were returned to the city from California, where they handed themselves in following a nationwide manhunt.

Their charges came after a post-mortem examination found the victim, who police say was in a personal relationship with Lathem, had methamphetamines in his system.

Stabbed to death: Trenton Cornell-Duranleau

Warren, who says online he lives in Swindon, Wiltshire, was suspended from his job as senior treasury assistant after the body of the man, originally from Corunna, Michigan, was found mutilated on July 27.

Microbiologist Lathem, since sacked by Northwestern University, plans to plead not guilty, according to his lawyer Kenneth Wine.

Mr Cornell-Duranleau was a hairstylist originally from Corunna, Michigan, but was living in Chicago at the time of his death.
